At the Innate Killer Summit 2021, held March 23-25, GTBP’s Deputy Director of the Masonic Cancer Center and GTBP’s Chief Medical Officer presented a progress report on the trial. Using interleukin-15 (IL-15) containing TriKEs, Dr. Miller’s presentation, “NK Cell Therapeutics: Off-the-Shelf Strategies for Increased Activity and Specificity,” highlighted the clinical relevance of immune engagement with these drugs.
